Considering Matthew Shepard

Considering Matthew Shepard, composed by Artistic Director Craig Hella Johnson and presented by his Austin-based, Grammy-winning Conspirare choral group, is a musical and multimedia response to the anti-gay hate crime 20 years ago that captured the world’s attention. Johnson leads the group from the piano. “Powerfully cathartic, it leads us from horror and grief to a higher understanding of the human condition,” wrote the Washington Post.
